Product Description

Britewort Copper Finings or Carrageenan is well established in the brewing industry as an important processing aid. Originally, unprocessed seaweed of the species Chondrus crispus (Irish Moss) was used to good effect. As interest in the food industry for high kappa isomer species such as Euchema cottonii increased, so did availability and quality. Today most carrageenan used in brewing is this species. Its role as the most cost effective method of wort clarification is undisputed.

When added to the boiling wort, kappa carrageenan reacts strongly with soluble proteins, notably the proline-rich haze precursor fraction. When the wort is cooled the carrageenan-protein complex becomes unstable and precipitates out of solution. The clear wort that results produces a beer with enhanced processing characteristics.

Add ¼ -1 tablet per 5 gallons (25 litres) of beer. The tablets are added directly to the wort during the last 10 minutes of the boiling period.

Benefits: Improved hot break compaction, improved yeast vitality during fermentation, improved beer haze and colloidal stability.

Not sure why, but the Summer Cup samples are going down a storm in the shop this morning. :-)
This is alcohol-free, but we have the alcoholic version too for the brave non-drivers.
We hope there will be some left for the weekend.

We've been feeling a bit fed up with the weather lately and as it's the school holidays too we've decided to brighten up our day with a fresh cream and homemade strawberry jam Victoria sandwich cake sprinkled with red glitter and decorated with red hearts. Can't wait to have a slice of it later 🍓🍰❤
